According to the Associated Press:
Whatever challenges Democrat Mikal Watts faces as a Texas senatorial hopeful, money isn‘t one of them.
Nor will he need to hitch a ride to make his campaign stops.
A San Antonio-based trial lawyer, Watts announced recently he might run against Sen. John Cornyn. Out came the personal checkbook, and $3.8 million in personal loans and contributions later, he had as much money in his campaign account as the incumbent.
Watts also filed a financial disclosure statement recently that showed he owns two airplanes, a 1976 Westwind jet and a 1979 Cheyenne turboprop.
